“The easing of restrictions on travel to and from the UAE is an important first step and a great development for Abu Dhabi,” said Tony Douglas, group CEO of Etihad Aviation Group. “By August we aim to operate approximately 45 percent of our pre-Covid capacity.|

“While we have continued to operate a schedule of special passenger, cargo and humanitarian flights over the last few months, the priority is now to build the network back up on markets that have opened up, and to provide a secure and hygienic flying environment across the entire guest journey,” he added.

As part of its expanded hygiene and safety procedures, Etihad has introduced specially trained ‘wellness ambassadors’ tasked with providing health information and care on the ground and on every flight.
